The purpose of the game is collecting a score higher than the croupier’s adding the values of the cards dealt but not exceeding 21. Players bet against the casino. It is called Black Jack when a player reaches 21 points with an initial two-card hand. If the croupier gets Black Jack too, a tie is called and no one wins or loses.
Players play their hands against the croupier’s, and they can play a maximum of two hands per round.
This game has two versions, Classic Black Jack and Perfect Pairs Black Jack, whose main difference is that in the second version the player bets on getting a pair of the same suit or another kind of pair.
To play Black Jack six 52-card decks are used, three of each color; it is also allowed to use decks of one color, as long as colors are alternated between tables. The back of the cards must have the same motif (design).
The values for each card are the following:
Ace: One or Eleven points, at the player’s choice.
Face Cards (J or Jack, Q or Queen, K or King): 10 points
The rest of the cards keep the face value.
To shuffle and begin the game at least two hands should be participating, that is, a player with two hands or two players with one hand each. In every table a maximum of 7 seated players can participate at each box.
